Holy crap man that stuff is AWESOME. I have a AC unit in my window. I was already contemplating moving my rad in front of it in the summer when I turn it on super low. Wont be as cold in my room, but my computer will be colder.

Give me time to read through all of your posts. Everyone thinks my crazy ideas are stupid because I can't spell or type or do english worth a crap, but you have a lot of cool stuff I've dreamed of but passed off cause meanies just tell me im crazy.

Lol Skeeter I'm sure your not crazy......being innovative and thinking outside the box will always draw in the nay sayers.....and I do agree that most things that are of real value have already been tried so there is always a danger of going down a route that has been proven to be a dead end.....but having said that there is still some wiggle room for new ideas.

My latest idea of complete submersion/phase change cooling in liquified refrigerant I believe has some legs. It evolved from my chill box build which was using chilled air cooling but as air cooling even using -30c air isn't that efficient then my load temps weren't as good as they could be, also air cooling heatsinks using heat pipes or vapor chambers don't work as they freeze. So although the build works well it does have some shortcomings.

So I wanted to improve the cooling link between the air con unit and the components and use as direct a cooling method as possible.
Using this submersion/phase change idea allows me to use very direct cooling, with a sheet of panasonic pyrolitic graphite/graphene either directly adhered to the die or heatspreader without the use of commercial water blocks or heat sinks.
It's also going to be a surprisingly simple build and require little to operate it other than some fans and perhaps a pump to enhance the cooling.

Having said that I wouldn't encourage anyone to do this, there is risk involved, and I'm actually going to build this in an outhouse.
If you are dealing with approx 15 liters of liquified gas that has a boiling point of -12c then leakage of that could lead to explosive evaporation and suffocation of anyone in the vicinity......also as I've been unable to source the non flammable gases I wished to use at other than ridiculous prices then it seems I'm going to have to use cheaper readily available alternatives that are flammable.

Having said that I have spent months researching and thinking out how to do this safely and would not be proceeding if I thought I could not do this safely......but again would not encourage anyone else to do this.
